Caleb King Once Again Looking For A New Team

Former University of Georgia running back Caleb King is once again looking for a new team after being cut by the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday. The roster move comes just three days after King was arrested for an alleged altercation where a man ended up with a "serious brain injury" and over 50 stitches. King hasn't been charged but the incident is still under investigation. The Vikings didn't wait and acted Tuesday severing ties with the 24-year old running back

Its just the latest in a long line of disappointments surrounding King who was once one of the most sought after prospects in the state of Georgia. King never quite lived up to expectations on the field and was disappointing off. He had everything from failing to appear in court for a speeding ticket and eventually came up academically ineligible which led him to the NFL's supplemental draft.

King may in fact prove innocent this time around but his track record may suggest otherwise. Here's hoping that he finally figures things out one day but until then his story should be a cautionary tale for all highly touted prospects.
